Nick Marra has been entertaining crowds with his down-to-earth comedy for over 20 years. Drawing on his experiences from growing up in an Italian Catholic home, to his current family comprised of two sons in their 20’s and a daughter (16 years later), audiences easily relate to his quirky observations. He performed live at the 2017 ESPN ESPY Awards, and has also appeared on Good Morning America, Up All Night, and he’s a regular guest on TK-99 Classic Rock in Syracuse. Local audiences have seen him at The Funny Bone and Wise Guys comedy clubs in Syracuse, and he has also appeared at Dangerfield’s in New York, as well as other comedy clubs around the country and in Toronto, Ontario. He has also written a book, “Rants, Raves and Tweets.”
According to the Salt City Burlesque Facebook page: “R.J. McCarthy is a young comic from Syracuse, NY. His sarcastic and relatable humor has entertained hundreds of audiences, and helped him become one of the fastest growing performers in the area.”
